It was a perfectly preserved bat colony....educational too. Our guide Anne....was so informative and helpful...and accommodating.

i liked it because it's a world record and the staff are very accommodating.it's not too far from the center.just rent a motorcycle and you can reach the place.vanishing island can be seen from there.
We didn't know about this sanctuary until our island tour; we learned a lot about bats and their role in propagating that most sought-after but much too smelly fruit called Durian.

At first I did not expect that the bats in there is about 2.5 M+... But when I saw the 5 caves I was really amazed. And talking to bat women? my friend friend really enjoyed talking to her. And more amazing is that it was already recorded in Guinness as a largest colony of bats. If I can just... More
There are really a lot of bats in this place, the best time to visit is when the sunset is near, or a night tour of the place, bring mosquito repellents for the mosquitoes!
